The global lighting industry is getting ready for the 2018 Guangzhou International Lighting Exhibition (GILE), to be held this June
The global lighting and LED industry is gearing up for one of their key trade fairs of the year in China. The 23rd edition of Guangzhou International Lighting Exhibition returns from 9-12 June at the China Import and Export Fair Complex in Guangzhou. With more than 2,600 exhibitors from around the world already confirmed to join, this year's fair promises to be one of the largest editions to date.
We will continue to cultivate the fair as a platform to help industry players navigate the evolving business landscape and to unveil the industry's next game-changing breakthroughs
More than just a fair of booths and pavilions, Guangzhou International Lighting Exhibition organises a comprehensive concurrent event programme to bring the best and brightest in the industry to the show. This year's event programme ‒ THINKLIGHT: Embracing Changes ‒ encourages the industry to embrace ongoing changes in the lighting world and to discover rewarding new opportunities from both within and outside of traditional industry realms.
Some of the key themes to look out for around the exhibition include smart lighting, the miniaturisation and integration of LEDs and human-centric lighting.
"The rising trend of the smart city and smart building concepts utilising data analytics is revolutionising the way in which the lighting industry operates,” commented Lucia Wong, Deputy General Manager of Messe Frankfurt (Shanghai).
“We are glad to see these changes bring with them the possibility to introduce a renewed energy and strength to the industry. We will continue to cultivate the fair as a platform to help industry players navigate the evolving business landscape and to unveil the industry's next game-changing breakthroughs."
The Guangzhou International Lighting Exhibition runs concurrently with Guangzhou Electrical Building Technology. Both are a part of Messe Frankfurt's Light + Building Technology fairs worldwide, headed by the biennial Light + Building event.
Messe Frankfurt also offers a series of other light and building technology events worldwide, including the Shanghai International Lighting Fair (held in September), Thailand Lighting Fair, BIEL Light + Building in Argentina, Light Middle East in the United Arab Emirates, Interlight Moscow powered by Light + Building in Russia as well as Light India, the LED Expo New Delhi, and the LED Expo Mumbai in India.
